Wingsuit flier dies after jumping accident.


This was no jumping accident.

The jump was intentional and apparently was successful. This is more of a "flight accident".

Those suits look great and the footage people take with them is amazing, but I am not shocked about how many people have died using them. I think I read somewhere France wants to ban their use because of so many deaths.

Good one, subby. Especially since (in the live action show), the bartender's reaction to Arthur opening his wings was "He's going to fall down a lot and die."

Who would have thought wingsuit flying would be dangerous ?

Did they every release the third season on DVD?  I can't seem to find it anywhere.

A shock to the winguit community. A tragedy. Totally unexpected. Nobody saw this coming, he was with us one day and gone the next. If we all stick together we can make it through this unfortunate situation. It was all part of God's plan.

...now let's honor his memory by flying together in our wingsuits. It's what he would have wanted.

You know what this don't you Tick?

No idea

It's OK, it was just one of his mucus clones.

/Are the arrangements being made by the Civic-Minded Five?

MonoChango: Did they every release the third season on DVD?  I can't seem to find it anywhere.


Not in the US.

In fact, the US releases are each missing an episode, because reasons.

Your best bet at this point is to search ebay for cheap copies of the UK releases. They include all episodes, and IIRC, they're region 0 and can be played in the US. But before buying, you might want to make sure your DVD player is able to be hacked to become region free.

/or, just download 'em off the 'net. That's probably simpler, unless you're weird like me and want to own physical media.

And it wasn't any propeller; and it wasn't any coral reef; and it wasn't Jack the Ripper! It was a shark.

Can I subscribe to subby's newsletter? It might give some insight into what makes him tick.

I don't understand subby's reference to The Tick either. Is it because this guy is one of the lame wingsuit fliers that needs a special wingsuit to fly? I expected him to find some crazy nickname on the link, or maybe antennae. But nope.

I had no idea what subby was referencing. I assumed they were bands that made the music that all of the wingsuit videos are set to.

I like the cut of subby's gibberish.

I've thought about taking up wingsuiting since it's the next natural progression for me from skydiving.  However, while the rush is certainly monumental, the danger is insane.  Something like 30% of the early wingsuit guys have died over the years.  That's a pretty staggering rate of death based on the already small pool of serious participants.

But, when you look at what you can do, you can see why people take it up.  It's amazing when you aren't splattered on a rock.

Dude, that was AWESOME. If I were about 20 years younger, I'd probably die trying to do that. At least I'd try, though. I can't imagine the kind of shape those guys have to be in to be able to do that and make it look easy.

Obviously this means we need to ban gravity.
